Program Notes

This work comes along with another work (“Tomorrow, We’re Still Together”) as a pair of commissions by Mrs. Danni Schmitt at the Roland Park Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore, Maryland. For this piece, Danni knew right away that she wanted to use the above text as an inspiration for this piece. The poem was written by one of Danni’s middle school students as a sort of instruction manual for the younger students as they began their own journeys into becoming band musicians. That poem is included in the work as a narration, helping to divide the piece into each of it’s major formal sections.
